Marvel Goes Horror in Official Trailer for The New Mutants
These aren’t the X-Men mutants you’ve come to be familiar with.
By Chris Morse
The New Mutants has been in development for some time at 20th Century Fox and Marvel Entertainment, making it all the more exciting that today brought us our first major look at what it’s all about. Fortunately for those of us comic book nerds here at Dead Entertainment, this project is crossing over into the world of horror with a psychological thriller approach in tow.
Set in an isolated hospital, the story follows a group of young mutants who are being held for psychiatric monitoring. When strange occurrences began to take place, both their new mutant abilities and their friendships will be tested as they battle to try and make it out alive.
The film is written by Josh Boone and Knate Lee, with the former also directing. Starring is Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things), Alice Braga (Predators), Blu Hunt (The Originals), and Henry Zaga (CBS All Access’ upcoming The Stand limited series). Simon Kinberg, Karen Rosenfelt, and Lauren Shuler Donner are producing.
The New Mutants will hit theaters on April 3rd, 2020. Keep yourself in the loop by giving Dead Entertainment a follow to stay up-to-date on all the latest news and information ahead.
